Improving Fuel Economy

How Can AMSOIL Save You Money?

For A Vehicle Driven 20,000 Miles Per Year, and Receiving 20 MPG:

  • Vehicle burns 1000 gallons per year at a cost of $2500 (at $2.50 a gallon).
  • 5% fuel economy increase with AMSOIL = 1 MPG.
  • Vehicle now gets 21 MPG.
  • Vehicle now burns 952 gallons per year at a cost of $2380 (at $2.50 a gallon).
  • 48 less gallons/year for a savings of $120/year.
  • For A Vehicle Driven 20,000 Miles Per Year, and Receiving 15 MPG:

  • Vehicle burns 1333 gallons per year at a cost of $3325 (at $2.50 a gallon).
  • 5% fuel economy increase with AMSOIL = 0.75 MPG.
  • Vehicle now gets 15.75 MPG.
  • Vehicle now burns 1270 gallons per year at a cost of $3175 (at $2.50 a gallon).
  • 63 less gallons/year for a savings of $157/year.
  • For A Vehicle Driven 20,000 Miles Per Year, and Receiving 10 MPG:

  • Vehicle burns 2000 gallons per year at a cost of $5000 (at $2.50 a gallon).
  • 5% fuel economy increase with AMSOIL = 0.5 MPG.
  • Vehicle now gets 10.5 MPG.
  • Vehicle now burns 1904 gallons per year at a cost of $4760 (at $2.50 a gallon).
  • 96 less gallons/year for a savings of $240/year.
  • If you are a trucker, see how AMSOIL can save you money on fuel, and make your rig last longer and run better.

    HOW ELSE CAN MOTORISTS IMPROVE FUEL ECONOMY?

    Efficient driving, proper maintenance, and good planning can help motorists get the most out of their fuel dollar. The following tips can help ease the burden of escalating fuel prices:

    EFFICIENT DRIVING
    1. Avoid aggressive driving habits like speeding and rapid acceleration. It lowers gas mileage by up to 33% at highway speeds. Gas mileage steadily decreases at speed above 60 MPH.
    2. Avoid unnecessary idling. Vehicles get 0 MPG while idling.
    3. Use the cruise control. Setting cruise control while highway driving maintains consistent speed and saves gas.
    4. Use overdrive gears to slow down engine speed, saving gas and reducing engine wear.
    5. Use the ventilator instead of the air conditioner and keep windows rolled up. This reduces engine workload and wind resistance, improving fuel economy up to 15 percent.

    PROPER MAINTENANCE
    1. Fixing out-of-tune vehicles improves fuel economy by an average of 4.1 percent. Replacing a malfunctioning oxygen sensor improves fuel economy by as much as 40 percent.
    2. Regularly check the vehicles air filter. Replacing a clogged filter not only improves fuel economy by up to 10 percent, it protects the engine as well.
    3. Check tires for proper air pressure every two to four weeks. Properly inflated tires improve fuel economy by about 3.3 percent.
    4. Use the manufacturer's recommended motor oil viscosity. Using a higher viscosity than recommended decreases fuel economy by one to two percent.

    GOOD PLANNING
    1. Combine errands into one trip. Engines are most efficient when warmed up. Multiple short trips taken from cold start use up to twice the gas as one longer trip covering the same trip.
    2. Avoid peak rush hours as much as possible to spend less time in traffic and consuming gas. Taking advantage of carpools, ride share programs, and public transit not only saves fuel, but wear and tear on vehicles as well.
    3. Reduce aerodynamic drag by carrying cargo in the trunk rather than on a roof rack. This can improve fuel economy by five percent. Avoid carrying unnecessary heavy items. One hundred extra pounds in the trunk can reduce fuel economy by one to two percent.
